Classification society DNV GL entered into a joint development project (JDP) with Huangpu-Wenchong Shipbuilding Company (HPWS) on a 5,000 TEU LNG dual-fuel containership.

According to the agreement, HPWS and DNV GL will jointly develop a new 5,000 TEU Panamax container ship for the fast-growing intra-Asia trades.

In order to minimize energy consumption, emissions to air, and achieve maximum cargo capacity with lower OPEX, the vessel will use LNG as ship fuel, have a hydrodynamically optimized low resistance ship line, and a more effective structural design, DNV GL said in its statement.

“I am very excited this marks another significant achievement, further to the strategic cooperation agreement and the 200th DNV GL classed vessel built by HPWS last year. It is trust and synergies stemming from our powerful partnership that makes this happen today, and I am positive there is more to come in the near future,” said Wang Yi, HPWS Commission Director for Science and Technology.

“Closely partnering with industry and sharing knowledge is crucial to helping the industry improve its environmental footprint while remaining competitive, and the new HPWS vessel is a case in point for this approach,2 said DNV GL’s Falk Rothe.

The JDP includes drawing assessments, an AIP statement, and a workshop looking into intra-Asia container transportation.
